Six months pregnant woman killed by dogs during hunting

A pregnant woman was mauled to death by dogs in France as she walked through a forest where a deer hunt was taking place.

The body of 29-year-old Elisa Pilarski, who was six months pregnant, was discovered in a forest near to the town of Villers-Cotterets, some 55 miles north-east of Paris, on Saturday.

Ms Pilarsk bled to death after suffering bits from several dogs to her arms, legs and head, according to an autopsy report.

Prosecutor Frederic Trinh added that some of the bites were “post-mortem”.

Ms Pilarski, who had been walking her own dogs but was not part of the hunt, is said to have called her husband shortly before her death to tell him there were “threatening dogs” near her and she was afraid she would be attacked.
